Haroset from Egypt
Apples, nuts, and cinnamon symbolize the mortar of our Egyptian toil.
On the Passover seder plate, haroset symbolizes the mortar used by slaves in Egypt.
Put the dates and raisins/sultanas with the wine in a pan. Add just a little water to cover. Cook on very low heat, stirring occasionally, until the dates fall apart into a mush. Cook until it thickens to a soft paste. Pour into a bowl and sprinkle with walnuts.
